About CloudNCWe’re on a mission to enable efficient manufacturing processes with a single click - creating a clean and sustainable industrial revolution that accelerates humanity.
At CloudNC we are ambitiously and successfully developing deep technology that automates CNC Manufacturing. We have a factory running commercially to produce intricate and high-specification work for our clients which allows us to also tie in our software to a tangible, physical output.
In excess of £150 Bn worth of components are produced using CNC machines every year. The industry is reliant heavily on human input which is slow and costly. Demand and value of the industry is rapidly growing, as are the increased demands on a vanishing workforce (50% will retire within the next decade).
We’re on a mission to automate manufacturing and create a clean and sustainable industrial revolution that accelerates humanity.
We are driving a manufacturing revolution and we have achieved notable success and world firsts where others have failed. We are ambitiously scaling up having closed on our Series B, achieving partnerships and investments by the best possible organisations in our respective industries – including Autodesk (multi-industry software world leader), Lockheed Martin (the largest aerospace/defence company in the world), British Patient Capital (arm of the UK Gov’s British Business Bank focused on pushing British R&D in large potential large scale tech companies). You can find out more on these partnerships here:
We have been featured in Forbes and technology linked organisations (e.g. TechCrunch, The Engineer etc.), we were awarded and named as Technology Pioneers by the World Economic Forum and our founders are listed in the Forbes 30 under 30.
What it’s like to work together.
We are embarking on a strong scaling strategy and pivotal to this success are the people.
We are guided by the mission and by being humans of empathy, intellectual curiosity, collaboration, and continuous improvement/development (of self and the team).
We are over 90 people strong, with the ambition to double this headcount in the near future. We encourage your thoughts and feedback to help shape the company, whether through direct correspondence, feedback platforms, open door time and other channels.
We operate a “flexible first” environment, our HQ office is based in London and our modern factory is based in Chelmsford, Essex.
As we continue to expand our Autonomous Machining Team (AMT), we are looking for an experienced QA Engineer.
The role will involve designing, implementing and executing both manual and automated tests, debugging systems and defining corrective actions. You will also review system requirements and track quality assurance metrics (e.g. defect densities and open defect counts.)
Our QA engineers are managed by the QA Manager but will perform their day-to-day work embedded within individual teams. The role will report to our QA Manager.
To be successful as a QA engineer, you should have extensive knowledge of QA techniques and processes and be a great communicator. You will have proven QA technical skills, an appreciation for the complex nature of our industry and be comfortable working in a fast-moving startup environment.

● Create detailed, comprehensive and well-structured test plans and test cases
● Estimate, prioritize, plan and coordinate testing activities
● Review requirements, specifications and technical design documents to provide timely and meaningful feedback
● Liaise with internal teams (e.g. developers and product managers) to identify system requirements
● Identify, record, document thoroughly and track bugs
● Perform thorough regression testing when bugs are resolved
● Track quality assurance metrics, like defect densities and open defect counts
● Design, develop and execute automation scripts using open source tools / frameworks
● Stay up-to-date with new testing tools and test strategies
